Subject: Day 14 Banding
Not great numbers or species this morning, but with the wind it turned out better than expected. Sixteen birds of seven species handled with no recaptures. White-throated Sparrows now starting to appear in good numbers.
Thanks to our four volunteer helpers enduring a blustery day.

Swainson's Thrush 1
